West St or Portobello St – which is quicker?

23 May

We’ve recently announced an extension to the Portobello Street cycle route – see our recent news release about the extension – and we went out on our bikes to do a side-by-side comparision to the West Street route.

Part of this route (between Western Bank and Mappin Street) has been completed in partnership with University of Sheffield.

The next phase introduces a 700-metre walking and cycling route along Portobello Street, Trippet Lane and Pinfold Street.

County Lines Information- general information

22 May

Have you got concerns about a young person you know? Have you noticed a significant change in their behaviour and do you think they are being exploited by others?

County lines is where members of organised crime groups move children or vulnerable adults around the country, for the purpose of selling drugs, in a bid to expand their criminal network.

This week, we are raising awareness about county lines and child criminal exploitation.

We want people to know who to contact, should they have concerns. If you are worried about someone, these are the numbers to call:

* You can speak to police on 101
* Always call 999 in an emergency
* If you don’t feel comfortable speaking to a police officer, please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. Crimestoppers are totally separate from the police, they are an independent charity.
* If you are a young person who is worried about this particular topic, please speak to a parent, carer, teacher or someone else you feel comfortable confiding in – please tell someone about how you’re feeling.
* You can also contact Childline anonymously on 0800 1111.
* You can also pass information anonymously to www.fearless.org Fearless is an independent charity where you can give information about crime without giving any personal details

Some of the signs that someone could be a victim include:

* A significant change in behaviour
* New group of friends who are older and encouraging them to spend a lot of time away from home
* New, unaffordable items that they cannot account for
* Going missing or being away from home for long periods of time
* Unexplained injuries
* A decline in performance at school
